Fun Stuff

From "30 Rock: Live from Studio 6H (#6.19)" (2012)
Kenneth Parcell: NBC had the first two black characters on TV... sort of. For "Alfie & Abner," NBC hired one African-American and one Caucasian because they thought two black people on the same show would make the audience nervous; a rule NBC still uses today!
Alfie: [Scene changes to a black & white 1950s TV show, Alfie & Abner. Tracy Morgan enters dressed in fine clothes as Alfie] Abner, I'm home from work! Where are you, my brother?
Abner: [Entering in ragged overalls with dirt on his face and an afro wig: a blackface character:] Here I is, Alfie!
Alfie: [Offended:] Aw hell no, I'm not doing this!
Kenneth Parcell: [Scene changes back to Kenneth and the TGS crew] NBC received a lot of complaints... that the show wasn't on often enough. So they forced Theodore Freeman to honor his contract.
Abner: [Walks in carrying a large catfish] I's done stole'd dis catfish!
Alfie: Sir, I'm asking you as a human being to please stop talking like that!
Abner: I's gon' eat it until I'm belly-full!
Alfie: This is debasing to the both of us. I was a Tuskegee Airman!
Abner: Zip-a-dee-doo-doo!
